Some of the new areas added this week include Leamington Spa and Halifax.
Next-gen 5G internet is super-fast, giving you much quicker downloads speeds while out and about.
“Our award-winning 5G service is now available in 125 towns and cities across the UK,” said BT chief Marc Allera.
“And our rollout continues so we can bring the best mobile experience to even more people and places.”
Current 5G speeds in the UK can reach around 10 times higher than average 4G speeds – even as high as 500-600Mbps.
But in the future, 5G internet could be multiple times faster than that.

It means you can download apps and games faster, stream higher-quality content with less buffering, and have enjoy video call quality.
Mobile networks are now racing to deliver 5G across the country.
Here’s the list of new towns and cities now able to access 5G internet with EE:
- Leamington Spa
- St Albans
EE also recently ranked in the top spot for fastest average download speeds.
Latest testing by RootMetrics put EE ahead of all other networks, naming it the best for online gaming.
It also performed well in tests for low packet loss and minimal jitter.
Of course, not everyone in the UK can upgrade to 5G just yet.
Even if 5G is in your area, you might still not get ultra-fast speeds even with a 5G SIM.
That’s because only certain phones are 5G ready.
Most modern Samsung and Huawei phones are shipping with 5G.
But only the very latest iPhone models offer 5G.
That means to get 5G with an Apple blower, you’ll need an iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Max.
Any other iPhone will be unable to access 5G speeds even with a 5G SIM in a 5G area.
Here’s the full list of EE 5G areas:
